1. You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

And now you are laughing at yourself.

So, I have everything set up for my new bed. It looks pretty awesome, and I think the cats approve - they've been sleeping on it all day. All in all, it's been a pretty good day. I got about ten hours of sleep on the new mattress last night, my mom, brother and I went to Penn Station for lunch, my Ralph Lauren Hot perfume sample roll-on came in the mail today (I smell awesomely delicious), and I'm getting stuff settled down in long flat boxes to go underneath my new bed and cleaning out my storage closet all in one massive sorting. After I get my room done, I need to finish up my Christmas shopping and Christmas party planning, and then I can have some lazy time before going back to school in January. Woo!

Early Christmas present!!

So, for Christmas this year I am getting a new queen size bed. It was delivered this morning, which would have totally rocked except that the delivery guys couldn't get the box springs down the basement stairs. :( They're going to be back tomorrow morning with a split box springs, so I am sleeping on the floor for one more night, but at least it's on a much bigger mattress.

Still listening to Tenacious D.....

.....and uploading pictures. Unfortunately, I am a dumbass and forgot that I meant to take pictures last night but fell asleep before I actually did it. Then this morning the guy had been banging away for hours before I went upstairs to start taking "during" pictures, which was when I realized that I had no "before" pictures. Oh well. Mom said she took some before shots, so I will just upload those later on. So far it's pretty funky. We found part of the original paint job hidden underneath the soffit, and it's kinda strange. The walls were a mustardy yellow, and the ceiling was red, and the red leaked down onto the yellow in a scallop pattern. It looks like the inside of a circus tent. WTF? Anyways, the guys spent today just pulling out a lot of the cabinetry and shit, and in doing so they exposed some of the original flooring as well. Asbestos tile. Yum!

If you want to see the kitchen picture album, click here. I will keep adding pictues to this same link so just click here every time I tell you there are new pictures.

Mom and I picked out flooring today, or at least we picked the flooring she's pretty sure she's going to go with. It's pretty decent, grey irregular tile squares pattern on vinyl kinda stuff. I told her to get ceramic for the not goudging and getting fugly factors but she thinks it will be cold. What floor isn't?

Kitchen remodel!!

We're getting our kitchen remodeled starting today, and my mom is just about ready to pop. She kept saying she wouldn't be able to sleep last night because she was so excited, and later today we're going to pick out flooring. The kitchen is going to be yellow walls, light oak cabinets, white appliances, and blue counter top, and she wants to get a white or white/grey marble tile with blue diamonds in it. BUT, she can't seem to find anything she really likes at Home Depot, which is where we go for pretty much every household need known to man. That means we get to haul our happy asses all over the place going to floor stores. I shall take some pictures of the kitchen before, during and after so you can breathlessly follow our progress.

Currently listening to Tenacious D

I have recently become obsessed with Tenacious D and being healthier*. Also the sound my fingernails make when I type fast. Or slow, too. Click click click.

*Yeah, I don't really get it. About a week ago I decided to start using the Ab Lounger and I have used it every night since, for like ten or fifteen minutes each night. I started eating prunes after doing my excercise and drinking a full glass of water. Today for lunch I had some salad with extra stuff in it, like broccoli, and some mostaccioli, and for dessert I had an apple. For dinner I bought a Lean Cuisine at work with chicken and rice in it. All this by itself isn't too weird, but here's the part that really puzzles me -I don't want chocolate.

At all.

I have a bar of Dove chocolate (possibly the best chocolate in the free world) and I don't want to eat it. I've had it for two days now and it's still on my dresser. Normally this exact bar of chocolate lasts approximately 87 seconds before I consume it. I'm starting to wonder just what the hell is going on with me. Maybe it's just a phase, but I hope it lasts for a little bit. I could stand to be healthier.
